I could tell by the second week. I stopped waking up in pain and feeling overwhelmed by everything. If you will read through the board you will see lots of us have setbacks. A few weeks into it I was feeling so good! Then one night I had a big dish of ice cream and was sick for a week.

One thing I learned from this board is go natural and simple for your foods. Lean proteins, fresh fruit and veg simply prepared make me feel great.

As far as withdrawal-you very well could be. I think there is someone on here who know alot more than me.

I wish I had more help to give you but I'm new to this as well. (3 weeks) I have found I like Whole Food Markets gluten free bread. Nature's path has good cereals, Vans, has good waffles,Tinkyada has good pasta, corn torillas are not as bad as I thought, kool-aid, miracle whip, and quaker rice cakes are no nos. I haven't started baking my own stuff yet but I've been told potato flour is be best way to go for breads. Hang in there. Take it one day at a time. Get creative with meals. Mine was three corn tortillas with, chesse, turkey. lettece, mayo, and bell pepper. It was good! My lunch will be the same thing but in a lettuce leaf instead. It really is one day at a time.

Withdrawls are very possible. The biggest thing for me was rolls.....I use Chebe products now and really like them!!!

It does get easier..and the "feeling better" time for everyone is diffrent!!! Give it time! It's frustrating but it does get better!

Good Luck!

It can take at least a week to get over just one glutening - it's going to take time for you to feel better.

As for "how do you do it?" - I find that sticking with naturally gluten free foods the easiest. Fruit and veggies, rice and beans, meats and (if you can have it - I can't) dairy and eggs. Then get into the specialty foods. Two things I find to greatly help get through the first thing, if you don't want to cook *everything* from scratch, are corn tortillas and store bought hummus and/or guacamole. ;)

    The biopsy would need to come from your small intestine. That's where the damage is done from celiac. But you need to be on a gluten diet for the tests to be accurate. How long have you been on the PPIs? My hubby had severe acid reflux issues ...
    The doctor did 8 biopsy from the top of my throat to the bottom of my stomach....he thought I had H-Hyploi..but I did not. I am beginning to think they are missing my issues. He gave me some pump inhibitors, that's it. I have an appt. with...
    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.
